But as long as people don't throw up their arms and run away or come after me with pitchforks and torches, I figure most of the time I pass of okay.
So maybe I am being a little narcissistic, but recently my friend Marty snapped a picture of me during a photography class exercise that I rather like. I am looking earnestly into the camera. My expression is rather intense. My first thought: that could be book jacket photo! That really struck me as significant.
So I had the picture here printed in a 5x7 format to hang on the fridge or maybe the mirror in my bathroom. Somehow it is the me I want to be: someone who looks you in the eye and listens, understands, knows. That is someone I would want to know. That is someone I would like. That someone is...me!
